I suggest checking out places like Gulf Coast Ecosystems, Reef Cleaners, KP Aquatics, and even Algae Barn has some. Some local people might have some, but these are the main places I get mine / see them for saleWhere do I get me some of this eye candy? I never see it at the LFS. I rarely see it for sale in the for sale forum.
Where did you get your different macroalgae from?Yes! Macros are awesome! Here’s some pictures of my sunlit refugium. Algae grows so much faster than coral it’s a constantly changing underwater garden. Perfect place for all those cool little invertebrates that would get lost in a larger aquarium. And many times I have to turn off my skimmer it’s so efficient at lowering nutrients.
What is your favorite macroalgae that you have?
Gracalaria hayi center piece, some pieces would break off and ended up looking nice settling in gaps and growing like bushes. Some random mermaid fans scattered around. Tangs/urchin would eat other softer macros.
Red grapes is one I've been wanting to try, but is a lil harder to find.
Definitely the gracalaria hayi, which I got from you guys at Reefalpaooloza in Jersey 2 years ago! I used to have a fox face that decided to devour the halymenia maculata, it was a nice suddle contrast while it lasted, lol.What is your favorite macroalgae that you have?
A mushroom rock would look pretty cool up there!Pretty standard parameters, alk hovers 8.5-9. Nitates are ~5, Phosphates is outlier and is between about 1. It's something I just accepted, since the rest of the tank is fine and the type of foods that get fed are high in it.
As for the shelves, they are recent and the top left has one of those toadstools with the longer polyps The other rock I'm still unsure what to add. Any suggestions are welcomed! Really hoping the gorgonian grows taller in the background and flows between those 2 rocks.
